    One Reply to “Blood on the Dining-Room Floor: A Murder Mystery”

    1. 3.5 starsThis is Gertrude Stein’s foray into detective novels; written not long after her success with The Autobiography of Alice B Toklas and at a time when she was suffering with writers block (written about 1934 it wasn’t published until 1948). It is an experimental novel and it is quite apt that the virago edition I have has a Picasso painting on the front. It is a cubist painting and Stein was interested in cubism and this is also her attempt at a cubist novel. Modernism does not sit ea [...]

    2. from a more extended discussion onmy blog:Blood on the Dining-Room Floor is probably best read twice: once quickly through, on its own terms; then again with thought given to various annotations. The edition I have was published by the Creative Arts Book Company (Berkeley) in 1982 in an edition with a helpful afterword by John Herbert Gill; it has been made available on the Internet. The first time through you'll perhaps be irritated and/or bored; this is a frequent response to Stein's writing. [...]

    3. Hmmmm a book that is more about style and words rather than any discernible plot. But the words are good & it is short - I suspect it would be beyond my limits if it were much longer

    4. oh my god! this woman was brilliant. this book is meant to be read out loud. it is a character and totally a stae piece.

    5. Wiffley, repetitive sentences, nothing said directly, punctuation is random, no idea what's happening

    6. Simon at Stuck in a Book recently read and reviewed Blood on the Dining Room Floor (1933), a quirky mystery by Gertrude Stein based on real blood on her real floor. She doesn't do a bad job, at least not by Stein standards. Here is the review I wrote when I read it back in 2008.It was the summer of 1933 and Gertrude Stein had just achieved real success with the publication of her famed autobiography, The Autobiography of Alice B Toklas. But when she returned to her desk to begin writing her next [...]

    7. Di Gertrude Stein mi era molto piaciuta la “Autobiografia di Alice Toklas”, letta anni fa. Di questo libro, invece, non so cosa dire, né tantomeno dare un giudizio.Recita una recensione “ Gertrude Stein presenta una serie di delitti e di indizi invitando il lettore a fornire il suo verdetto. Il risultato e' un giallo sui generis, dove la storia rimane solo tracciata, c'e' si' il sangue in sala da pranzo, ma la trama si frantuma e con essa il linguaggio. La scrittrice condivideva, con gli [...]

    8. Gertrude Stein might be considered part of the "Lost Generation" and she is recognized around the world for her work, but this book was unnecessary. The book is about mysterious events which mix fictional and real facts in an elaborated and sometimes meaningless writing style. It is important to emphasize that Steins is known for her particular style and that this was her first work after a writing crisis in which she was unable to write.I could understand the book after reading the introduction [...]

    9. This crime novel won't be loved by crime novel lovers. I liked the book. I loved the introduction. Once again Janet Hobhouse perfectly invites us in the world of Stein's writings. Of course we can only gamble about what actually happened in G. Stein's head and soul but I completely trust Hobhouse's descriptions. She has done her homework and I believe Stein's way of seeing things and expressing this seeing in her writings is perfectly explained. This is not a typical crime fiction. It is Gertrud [...]

    10. If you're 1) reading your way through Stein or are 2) super into the detective novel genre this was a fun read. For 1) This is so typically Stein in that she completely ignores the fact that she's branded this a murder mystery and spins a story about a murder into a story about a town's politics, but she doesn't even let you rely on the facts she gives you and at times outright contradicts herself; After two chapters I realized there was never going to be an answer to who the murderer was. This [...]

    11. мені подобаються тексти з девіантними нараторами. серед моїх абсолютно улюблених персонажів є, наприклад, фолкнерові вардаман і бенджі. я тішуся з того, як за їхніми словами вибудовується сюжет, з того, як треба попрацювати, щоб склалася цілісна картинка.але "кров на підлоз [...]

    12. I can’t imagine any list without Stein on it. This is a charming murder mystery in Stein’s inimitable, intelligent style. Hemingway observed that Stein discovered many things about rhythm and repetition, and so she did. It begins: They had a country house. A house in the country is not the same as a country house. This was a country house. They had had one servant, a woman. They had changed to two servants, a man and woman that is to say husband and wife. The first husband and wife were Ital [...]

    13. is impossible to follow. There is no mystery, really—or there are mysteries, but not explicitly, and nothing is resolved. It’s meant to be read out loud, and Erik read it out loud to me. It’s not very long. It’s interesting mostly nonsense, I would say. I liked it a lot. I’ve read other books by Gertrude Stein, and this one was less follow-able.

    14. I understand that this is meant to be confusing and frustrating, but I just don't really understand it at all.

    15. Despite reading serious literature for over 30 years I think I need someone to explain to me if this is any good. What a weird book. Were the sentences jumbled?

    16. Secondo libro della Stein che inizio a leggere, secondo libro che non concludo. Personaggio che amo, ma ahimè la sua scrittura mi risulta molto difficile: sarà il suo particolare uso della punteggiatura? Sarà quell'intercalare, "Lizzie capisci.", ma chi è Lizzie? "Senti questa." Ma chi? Cosa? Sarà la traduzione, forse dovrei provare a leggerla in originale. Proverò.

    17. I did not really 'get' this. Short, odd, with prose that is twisting and turning. Not really sure what to make of it, I didn't like it exactly
